assad will use the weapons on his own people. former u.n. ambassador john bolton had this to say about the very dicey situation. >> i think it's far more likely he's threatening the opposition and basically either for negotiating purposes or because he thinks he's close to the end of the line, he's making it clear he's getting ready to use his ultimate weapon to increase his leverage. but i would not put it past assad to use this weapon. he's perfectly capable of doing it. it's the kind of regime he's been leading these past several years. >> gretchen: fox news learning the minimum tear drawing up contingency plans in case assad suddenly leaves syria. >>> another day, another blow to the tsa. exclusive report in the new york post reveals tsa screeners are doing their holiday shopping on the job? actually they're doing it not on the computer, they're doing it in your luggage. according to the report, 32-year-old sean henry was busted for stealing ipads and laptops from checked luggage at jfk airport in new york. police say it was part of a sting into the growing problem of screeners wit

as the u.n. envoy to syria. with so much concern about the threat of chemical weapons at this point, do you think there are any diplomatic options left? >> i think the play -- and hillary clinton met twice today with russian foreign minister lavrov -- is to get russia in the tent with the rest of the world. everyone has predicted, when facts on the ground change, russia will be there. this could be a reset moment for vladimir putin, and he could, because of his unique sway in the area, persuade, i would think, the bashar family to step aside and create a peaceful transition, like the transition in yemen. the opposition is now more broadly representative, and i would hope the russians would see that being on the wrong side of this just creates more carnage, more opportunity for terrorists to get traction there and won't help russia. >> it's a pivotal moment, as we say, a clear tipping point. glad you're back safe and sound from egyp. jane harman, thanks so much for coming in. the jersey shore about to meet the fiscal cliff. grim news for governor christie as he visits washington. >>> plus th
